More COVID-19 Postponements: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Hamburg and Warner Bros. Studio Tour

While Australia makes its first cautious moves back to pre-pandemic normalcy with the reopening of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Melbourne, the pandemic situation over in the West remains grim. Despite having already waited almost a year to make their stage debuts, the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Hamburg will have to wait a little longer, while Warner Bros.
